Assistant Professor (FCUP)
PhD in Optical Sciences - University of Arizona(EUA) - 1996


My research area is Physics of Nonlinear Systems (theory), mostly in the field of Nonlinear Optics.

  • Exciton-polariton condensates
  • Matter-wave solitons in periodicaly nonlinear BECs
  • Creation of solitons via Feshbach resonances in BECs
  • Interaction of solitons in fibre and solid state lasers
  • 1D Photonic-bandgap materials
